Thanks for the opportunity to participate. The curriculum was logical, the work was structured but also self-directed. The discussions were helpful and supportive, just like the basis of this forum.

I take a weekly pottery class and use porcelain clay. My latest projects are decorated with black-capped chickadees....they are being glaze fired today.....can't wait to see them at the next class.
This is the first time I have done any figurative work on my projects...thanks to feederSketch !!!

Lyn when you work up to a tea pot I'm buying.  Not that I would not be interested in the vase also.  So pretty and calming to look at.  Nice talent.  ginny h.

Hi everyone! 

The PFW: Sketch team just met in Cleveland at the Great Lakes Science Center this week to look at the sketches from our winter project. We posted them all around the room and talked about our memories from the project and started working on distilling what we learned from our experience so that we can share it with the informal science education field.

I thought you might like to see a few photos from the meeting...

The whole team: 

The room with all the sketches: 

And me beside one of hutchgigi's first drawings and my drawing to her when she couldn't find her colored pencils.

It was awesome to see all the sketches up like that -- I wish each of you who participated could have been there!

Enjoyed your info., pics., and sketches, maybe someday I'll have the courage to join in the drawings.  I am thinking about purchasing a book about sketching birds, any suggestions would be much appreciated, my drawings would be that of a beginner.
